Dos Pueblos Grad Makes Time List

Dos Pueblos High School graduate Ben Rattray was named one of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world. The magazine’s profile of him states, “Ben Rattray is the brain behind, a website that transforms the way people tell their stories and make change happen. There are a lot of petition websites, but is simple to use and supported by a team that provides media-messaging and engineering support.” He graduated DP in 1998 with the senior yearbook quote: “If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time.”
